We had a wonderful visit. The tour was interesting and informative.
It was a little bit overrated.
$100 for four people was a bit expensive.
Our tour guide was well informed, and his tour was interesting. Unfortunately, he was very rushed. He had to speak...More
Hearing a former gold miner talk about his experience is pretty cool. Seeing the machines in the mine is good. Examining the types of genuine gold ore is educational. BUT ... doing all this 1,000 feet underground is an experience that is ONE OF A...More
We went to Cripple Creek to ride the narrow gage railroad. All my kiddos are huge train fans, but the Gold Mine tour beat out the train as their favorite activity! The tour was so fascinating and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. All...More
At the end of our 5 day trip to Colorado Springs decided to visit Mollie Kathleen s Gold Mine en route back to Denver airport (RedEye to Philadelphia)
So glad we did! After plunging 1000ft down the mineshaft we were taken on an extremely professional...More
We thought this would be a really cool thing to do on our epic road trip, so we made plans to be here and drove all the way from Albuquerque. Their website states that the last tour leaves between 5:30 and 6, and we got...More
Took family to see the Gold Mine. Was an excellent experience. Tanner was our guide(moved there from Iowa because he loved it). Tanner was very good at doing it and really drew everyone into his speeches and showing us how everything was done. It was...More
We took our 5 grandkids on this tour of Mollie's Mine. They take you down 1000 ft below the surface on a small elevator. When you get down your tour guide takes you to different parts of the mine that were worked. They show you...More
We went to the Mollie Kathleen not really sure what to expect. We had such a terrific tour and the guide couldn't have been more know knowledgeable and interesting. He was actually a miner for more than 30 years. Be prepared for a 2 minute...More

You will enter and exit the mine by an authentic mine elevator. It is small and you will be packed in like sardines. I'm not exaggerating. It's okay though, because the ascent and descent are quick. Once in the mine you... More
You will enter and exit the mine by an authentic mine elevator. It is small and you will be packed in like sardines. I'm not exaggerating. It's okay though, because the ascent and descent are quick. Once in the mine you will be led through by a guide. No climbing, only walking. The ground is a bit uneven, so just be sure to watch your step. The temperature inside the mine is cool, but not cold. The temperature in Cripple Creek in July is very pleasant. It won't be hot, and it will not be humid. The entire State of Colorado is dry in climate. The mine is well worth the trip. I have gone three times, and will return again. If you are ever in Colorado in the Fall, the drive from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek is breathtaking. The Aspens and other Fall colors are something you will not experience anywhere else. It is spectacular. For admission cost to the mine, FAQs, and all information, you can visit their website. In your browser type in - Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine Website, and it will take you directly to their website. Happy summer travels to you, and enjoy Colorado, and Mollie Kathleen. Colorado truly is a magnificent state.
